HP88 CARTRIDGE RECOGNITION FAILURES/CAUSES:

The failure to recognize an ink cartridge(s) could either be a possible Cartridge connectivity, PRINTHEAD* connectivity or an end-of-life PRINTHEAD issue.

We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean BOTH PRINTHEADS manually along with cartridge chip contact surfaces (located on bottom-rear side of each ink cartridge). Clean all electrical contacts, including those inside the printer which mate to the PRINTHEADS. Reinstall both PRINTHEADS and cartridges and retest. You may refer to HP's 'manual' cleaning procedures here:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=2511747&prodTypeId=18972&objectID=c00844045

Ensure an "expired ink cartridge" alert state is not causing the issue, refer to this page on how to check & bypass: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1384

---- If you observe an "Expired xxxx ink cartridge" alert or message, this error may be bypassed by performing the following:
a. Press and HOLD the Power button.
b. Press Resume button 3 times.
c. Release the Power button

If the cartridge was refilled (i.e. at Costco or Fry's Electronics), following HP 88 cartridge chip replacement and complete cartridge/printhead/printer manual electrical contact cleaning, the cartridge alert message(s) continue, then you may have a damaged PRINTHEAD* (there are two printheads inside the printer) which may require re-priming or replacement depending on problem symptoms.

* The HP 88 ink-series printer models have two electronic PRINTHEADS (each of these electronic devices are responsible for pulling ink from the ink cartridges and then firing the ink droplets onto the paper) - both PRINTHEADS will eventually fail depending on printed content, printer duty cycle (i.e. typically rated for ~41, 500 printed pages depending on image content & frequency of printing). The average inkjet printer can typically be refilled with ~15 to 20 complete sets of ink cartridges over the life of the printhead, after which, either the Yellow/Black and/or Cyan/Magenta printhead will need to be replaced due to internal electrical failure (available at HP.com).

Refer to video on how the HP PRINTHEAD functions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054
When the PRINTHEAD electronically fails typically the printer will provide an alert message when this happens, but if a printhead has suffered a deprime (i.e. loss of ink/pressure which results in no printing of color), it is possible to recover the system using a 3rd party PRINTHEAD priming tool, such as this one: http://www.inkowl.com/?p=product&product=5035

On this HP the print head is not part of the cartridge. How do you know the print head is fine? Did you just try to do a test page without an alignment?
I know that HP (they suck) will not help you because you are past warranty - Google your question since I am sure that you are not the only person to have experienced this issue.
I think you have a bad print head.

Two choices; 1. Take the machine apart and take the roller out and then bend back the little follower.
2. Break the offending follower off and hope the paper still feeds through OK.

My HP printer has a cleaning programme and a cartridge priming programme. I had trouble with my colour cartridge, in particular the cyan. The cleaning cycle never worked but the priming programme worked a couple of times but whenever the printer was left idle for a while the colour would not print.

I took the cartridge to a refill shop and the guy emptied the ink and steamed out the cartridge and print head and refilled it and then it did work for a time.

A new cartridge is expensive and so these days I just use it for printing black...

I think there must be something strange or different about the cyan ink. Sometime in the future I am going to try steaming again only this time with a deal more pressure than the guy at the refill shop used.
I am sure it will be kill or cure...


Deleting the printer and reinstalling it should be the next step to try. Sometimes my printer goes a bit eccentric or gets in a bad mood if I try and pause or cancel printing from the printer menu. I have learned not to do that with any HP printer. Once it gets in a bad mood the only cure is to disconnect it from the mains and leave it for half an hour before plugging in again.
My printer, incidentally, is a Deskjet 96 Cxi professional machine. I like it because it prints both sides of the paper and it cost me nothing.

Try doing running it through it's aligment process.

It is also possible that the contacts where the ink cartridges mate up with the printer are corroded. Try using an eraser to clean the corrosion off the mating surface in the printer.
